We report the synthesis of Zinc Ferrite (ZnFe2O4) by chemical co-precipitation method (CBD). X-ray diffraction (XRD), FT-IR, Magnetic hysteresis are utilized in order to study the effect of annealing on the structural and Magnetic properties like saturation magnetic (Ms) and Coercive force (Hc). The phase identification of materials by XRD reveals the spinal cubic phase belongs to 227 space group. The results were showed the formation of zinc ferrite nanoparticles with an average particle size are in good agreement with previous reported experimental results and displayed good magnetic property. The variation in the magnetic ordering was observed as materials were annealed at different temperatures. The behaviour of these nanoparticles changes from super paramagnetic to ferromagnetic and hence useful as promising materials in biomedicine and electronic devices. Due to the simplicity and low cost of this process, it could be used for synthesis of ferrites nanoparticles. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers. All rights reserved.
